Yes, he is a world class bowler, but his lasting legacy in the game of cricket will be his celebrations – right from his appeal, to the victory run, to the chest thumping, to the kiss he blows towards the sky. Take nothing away though, Imran Tahir is one of the greatest leg-spinners to have played in T20s.
Bamboozling batters since 2011 in international cricket, the South African rose to become the number one white-ball spinner at the age of 37 in 2017. With a very well disguised googly, his vast experience of plying his trade around the globe, and infectious energy even at the age of 42, he is a proper asset on the field. He might have won practically everything there is to win under the sun (and floodlights!), but would absolutely love to do it all over again, in a new country, in a new league.
